Water Quality Testing

Service: Water Quality Testing

The first step in determining the overall health of your lake or pond is testing the water quality. ILM staff has many years of experience conducting water quality tests, analyzing data, and determining the major factors influencing the lake or pond. Lakes and ponds accumulate sediment overtime and this influences the water quality. This sediment can be high in nutrients and help contribute to algae growth as well as aquatic plants. ILM collects sediment samples to determine the causes of excessive algal growth. In order to broaden the scope of influences on bodies of water, ILM can collect shallow groundwater and soil samples for a more specific look at hydrogeological parameters affecting the lake.
